4th Louisiana Biennial National Juried Exhibition featured works by three members of the Newcomb Art Department faculty, Aaron Collier (Painting), William DePauw (Ceramics), and AnnieLaurie Erickson (Photography).
The exhibition, on view at the Louisiana Tech University School of Art Galleries until February 16th, was juried by Rachel Cook, Curator DiverseWorks in Houston, Texas.
William DePauw received an Honorable Mention for his piece, Tip of the Tongue, shown at left. Depauw has been teaching all levels of ceramics since 2006. His creative practice, broadly speaking, is based on a close observation of familiar objects. He is mostly interested in how objects visually reference their place in specific contexts, histories, and cultures despite profound portability. His work plays with fragmentary references to material culture such as packaging, consumer items, and historic works.
